CES: AT&T announces the Samsung Infuse, Galaxy S with new 1.2ghz Hummingbird and 4.5inch Super AMOLED Plus

Would you look at that? It finally happened. AT&T is getting serious about Android. It only took about 2 and 1/2 years, but it happened. Well, at least from my point of view, all can be forgiven. AT&T just announced the new super beast phone called the Samsung Infuse. The Samsung Infuse is, at least at the moment, the highest of high-end phones. It makes all other Samsung Galaxy S devices look pretty old (especially since they are all still stuck on Android 2.1 here in the United States). Here is a run down of what this new phone is packing.

HTC ditches Samsung AMOLED stock problem; picks Sony Super TFT LCD displays

In a move by HTC not to have pre-orders and current orders cancelled, HTC has decided to migrate away from Samsung’s AMOLED to Sony’s new Super TFT LCD displays for their selection of handsets. The move comes in response to Samsung’s ability to deliver the AMOLED  die to a production shortage. This may also be due to the fact that Samsung has a massive, world-wide marketing campaign for the new Galaxy S series of handsets, now being launched on five carriers in the United States alone.

We know that Sony builds some quality product but we are very curious to see how the new Super LCD’s stand up in comparison with Samsung’s AMOLED and see performance difference between the two in direct sunlight.

Samsung says AMOLED is better than Apple’s Retina display on iPhone 4

After WWDC, Apple’s biggest new feature in iPhone 4 was their new 960×640 retina display. With over 300PPI Apple says it is better than OLED because of OLED’s readability in sunlight. Samsung says that is all well and good, and the new high resolution is nice, but the Retina display doesn’t stand up to Samsung’s new Super AMOLED screen technology. According to Samsung, the iPhone screen is only 3-5% more sharp than the Galaxy S, but wastes 30% more battery. Also the contrast ratio doesn’t even compare. The new iPhone 4 features an 800:1 contrast ratio while the Nexus One’s AMOLED features a 100,000:1 contrast ratio. They go in to say that IPS technology will never catch up to AMOLED. So which is better? We will have to see how easy it is to use Samsung’s new screens in daylight as well as a side by side comparison. We prefer AMOLED indoors and LCD outdoors, but we will have to wait and see how the new models look for ourselves.

Update: Samsung’s Super AMOLED screen is super bright and clear in the sunlight. Now all we need is the iPhone 4 video of it’s screen in sunlight for comparison (thanks Mara!)
